Mark West Pinot Noir 2006
Excellent find for $9.99 and definitely agree with their motto, "Pinot for the People" Most Pinot's at this price point are a watery disaster. I wouldn't say complex, but some really nice flavors and a hint of depth. It actually drank better the next day.Add winemaker's notes
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

82 points: Decanted for 1 hour prior to pouring. Very typical PN color; dark but pale red, able to see fingers through the backside. Nose is very bland. I really had to try to smell much of anything. I know I am just finishing up with a cold, but really, I smelled very little. First taste: fairly tart fruit. Very little mid-palate. Honestly, pretty one-dimensional. Good tannin structure though. It goes from a tart fruit in the beginning, skips the mid-palate, the tannins then kick in, but not too harsh; mild chewiness. A little bit of mouth puckerin' action and then ends with about a 10-second finish. The "one-dimension'ality'" of this wine and the lack of any nose at all really hurts this PN. Too bad, I had good hopes for this one.
Very decent. I would agree with "mkaneko" on the flavors, although I don't have any experience with keeping it overnight...
Great wine with any meal
Juicy and clean
Great wine, goes with anything
